Later in the day, coach Jim McElwain joined the party in wishing his best to the Florida athletic director.

Foley was responsible for hiring McElwain away from Colorado State last year. In his first season, McElwain led the Gators to a 10-4 record, and an SEC Championship appearance.
It was one of many successful football season under Foley, who has led the Gators athletic program since 1992. The Gators became the first program in collegiate history to win both football and men’s basketball titles in the same calendar year under Foley’s watch in 2006.
During Foley’s tenure, 27 Gators teams have won national titles, with 14 of those coming since 2009.
